This was a great movie until it got to a very bad cliched ending. If they would have ended it before that, or changed it, it would have been so much better than it was. Overall pretty good, but not as good as it could have been.

An interesting movie. When aging bachelor Harry (Sanders) meets a beautiful woman named Deborah Brown (Raines), they instantly fall in love. The catch is that Harry has two sisters he lives with that are desperate and need him. When he and Deborah plan to get married, his sister Letty (Fitzgerald) does anything possible to fizzle the romance. "The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry" is a twisted little film that would most likely fall under the genre of film noir. Yet again, acclaimed director Robert Siodmak makes a great noir that sticks in your head forever. The acting performances are awesome, and Fitzgerald is so incredible in her messed up character that she should have at least been nominated for an Oscar. "The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry" is a movie that's most definitely worth your time, and any fan of film noir you'll be bound to like it.

You can't throw two anchors tied together into the water and expect them to float.

This certainly is a strange affair. A noir melodrama with George Sanders playing the title role as a meek man who lives his two sisters. When a woman enters into his life, one of his sisters becomes a little too jealous and the plot thickens into darker territory. With overtones of incest this was a daring film of its day. However the ending is a total cop out and is quite obviously tacked on. -Loses 10% of its rating.

A conventional story from Hollywood but one that is so wickedly immoral in its messagesl it is unconventional for its time.
